While we were in Charleston I found this gorgeous drawing of magnolias. Now magnolias are another favorite flower of mine. I think that they are so attractive and fragrant so finding a huge poster of them was wonderful.
I found it at the gift shop at the Magnolia Plantation. It was such a beautiful picture and a wonderful price! We only paid $10 for it! I knew that I had to have it framed and I knew that I had some wonderful frames at home.
What it looked like before framing my new artwork.
Assessing the poster and picking out the matting.
It took them about a week to get the project finished. They called this past Sunday afternoon while I was running errands. I was looking forward to seeing it.....
Bringing it home....
Hello Beautiful!!!! It is gorgeous! Better than expected and I love the contrast between the matting and the photo. My husband wanted the matting to match the photo but I thought having two different colors would give it a more custom look.
I could not wait to hang it.
And just so you guys get an idea of how big it is.
I took this photo beside it. It is a large picture.
I am so please with how this project turned out. Michaels only charged us $50 for everything which I thought was an outstanding deal. I now have this beautiful work of art that I can saw I got it while in Charleston. I will now consider custom framing for every picture that I want at home.
Thanks for reading!
